Maple (sycamore maple, sycamore)

Acer pseudoplatanus is a member of the maple family and called sycamore in the UK and sycamore maple in the US. It ranks amongst the most popular materials used in crafting string instruments. Traditionally it is selected to make the back, ribs, neck, scroll and bridge. Maple with a distinctly wavy pattern in the grain creates an especially appealing aesthetic; these waves are known as flames.
